Top Ten Tuesday (12)




Soooo... I have way too many books currently on my TBR – a lot of which are sitting prettily on my shelf – so this list wasn’t all that hard to think up. Of course, if I listed all the books that I wanted to read this winter you would be here for quite a while reading and would most likely give up and stop reading. So I decided to list only the books which are sitting on my shelf and I hope to use in the 2012 TR challenge (once I’m able to sign up for it. my internet isn’t fast enough in order to do so).
In no particular order those books are;
1. The Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer.
Now that I have all the pretty, pretty paperback covers I can properly dive into this series with gusto. I read the first novel a while ago from the library and they only had the second one on audio book so I tried but failed to get more of the Jacky story.
2. The Private series (and last Privilege novel) by Kate Brian
Another series that I have in its entirety and haven’t been able to read through. This will happen soon!
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Let the hailstorm begin. I can’t believe that I have yet to read this one!
4. Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
I read and loved her first four Sisterhood novels when they first came out and I really want to know how it all really ends.
5. Ten Things Wd Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski
This just looks like a great contemporary novel and it’s just sitting on my shelf.
6. Anything by Sarah DessenI’ve only read one book of hers and I want more! Due to my dives into used book stores I’ve collected quite a few of her novels!
7. The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
I absolutely loved I Am Number Four last year when I read it and I need to know what happens to Four and Six next!
8. Novels by Rick RiordanI’ve only read his Percy Jackson series and now I really want to read his Heroes of Olympus and Kane Chronicles novels.
9. Abandon by Meg Cabot
I love Cabot’s books and I have no idea why I haven’t read this one yet.
10. Sisters Red and Sweetly by Jackson Pierce
Fairy tale retellings are my favourite and I need to get around to reading these.

Ok, I cheated and listed way more than 10 books – but you can see where my entire TBR predicament comes from! I’ve made my Goodreads challenge this year already to read 125 books so next year with these ones on my list I hope to read more than that!
As always, check out The Broke and the Bookish for more Top Ten fun!

Loved Sisters Red and have Sweetly waiting for me to pick up. Would also love to read Abandoned as I love all things Cabot. Great list!

I;ve heard so many good things about Divergent, I hope to get to it soon too.

Alexa said...

Divergent is so good! I hope you get to read it soon. And as for Riordan, Heroes of Olympus is definitely my favorite series from him.

I've been meaning to read Sisterhood Everlasting. Thanks for reminding me!

I loved Sisters Red and Sweetly! I am such a Jackson Pearce fangirl! Abandon and Divergent were also fabulous! I kind of hated The Power of Six. It's misleading because most of the story is about Seven, not Four and Six. Also, the writing wasn't as good (it wasn't written by James Frey, but by some other Fiction Factory author). It was a huge disappointment for me, and I loved I Am Number Four. I hope you love it, but a word of advice... Get it from the library, and buy if you end up liking it. I kicked myself for spending the $17 on it.

My Top Ten

I have every intention of reading Divergent in Dec. I'm jumping on that band wagon. I also have The Power of Six and I am eager to read it. I hope you enjoy and good luck.

You haven't read Divergetn yet? I absolutely loved that book. I can't wait for the sequel. It is such a great dystopian novel.
